View Full Version : Widescreen setup question

I also posted this in Community Support forum, but was trying (futily) to find the directions to setup a widescreen monitor (with resolution, aspect ratio, etc,...) so as to eliminate the black banding or stretched image in a game (like IL2:46) that doesn't natively support widescreens.


Can anyone please point me to the threads or provide the conf.ini settings?


Thanks,

TB

I use the ol' 1400x900 this way and it works well...when BoB and KotS come along I'll have to get a bigger W/S monitor no doubt, but for now.... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

You do not need a wide monitor, you need this http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

But make sure before that your card can support 3072+ screen resolutions.

You mean in game screens or actual photos of the LCD at work?
